From the (first annual?) Christmas Cookie Exchange, baked by Nicole.

Stareos (from the Stars restaurant in San Francisco)
Yield: 1 1/2 dozen cookies

8 ounces cold sweet cream butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
Pinch salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted

The filling:
1 cup mascarpone
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

To make the chocolate shortbread:
Combine the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on low speed for 15 seconds, using the paddle attachment. Add the flour, salt, and cocoa powder and continue mixing on low speed for 3 to 5 minutes, until the dough comes together. It will look dry just before it comes together.

Put the dough on a lightly floured board and roll it out 1/4 inch thick. With a 2-inch star cutter, cut out the cookies. Chill them for 1 hour in the freezer. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the cookies so they are not touching on the pan.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

Bake the shortbread for about 1 hour, until firm.

To make the filling:
Combine the mascarpone, sugar, and vanilla extract in a small bowl.

To assemble:
Spread about 1 tablespoon of the mascarpone cream filling on 18 of the cookies. Put the remaining uncoated cookies on top of the creamed cookies, making a "sandwich".

CGA CDC's 'Week of the Child' Kite Flying

CGA CDC's 'Week of the Child' Kite Flying

The Coast Guard Academy Child Development Center helped raise awareness for the Week of the Young Child, April 11th -17th and Month of the Military Child with a family dinner at the Mystic Aquarium and a kite-flying event at the Coast Guard Academy.

The theme for this year is “Early Years are Learning Years, Children Soar with Quality Early Care and Education!”

The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The purpose of the week is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. The Academy CDC also includes special recognition to the military children during this month.

The idea to use kites came from the NAEYC logo used to promote and celebrate Week of the Young Child. They had created a kite with the phrase, “Bring Communities Together For Children … Children Bring Communities Together.”

A committee of parents and teachers formed and came up with many ideas centered around kites and involving the families. We passed out small kite pins to the parents to share at their worksite and hung small kites in the hallway decorated by and representing each family. Each idea was created to spread the message about the importance of early care and education. Because we are a part of a larger community here at the Coast Guard Academy, it was easy to spread the enthusiasm and one of our Snack Bar cooks even offered a special lunch for families and children immediately following our kite-flying event.

The Academy CDC serves many children of military parents in the local southeastern Connecticut area (Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force, Army and Marine families). Parent involvement is key in the center’s success, and celebrating the Week of the Young Child provides the perfect time to invite our parents to celebrate the children and the importance of the family. Some of our children’s parents were unable to share in this wonderful event due to the importance of their work, such as our deployed National Guard and Navy parents. Some of the Coast Guard parents serve on the Coast Guard Cutter Eagle. Regardless of duty assignment, the distance of separation is well known to military families. For those parents, we take photos of every event and photos of our children’s activities in school and share them via the internet.

The Child Development Center is accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs. Built in 1993, the program provides quality care and early childhood experiences for young children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

EVERYkidspark in Orangeville

EVERYkidspark in Orangeville

EVERYkidspark Orangeville - The brainchild of Wendy Cook, this first of its kind Boundless playground design in Canada is a shining example of what accessible and inclusionary play can be. This play environment is a complete package of junior play, senior play and swings and offers opportunities for all ages a abilities. With strict attention to detailed design, the junior area features such elements as the Braille Panel, Transfer Module and Dual Poly Slide for the younger child with special needs. Graduating to the senior play structures delights the user with ramped access to over 80% of the available deck space with many sensory panel play options along the way, many using the Reach Panel and Balcony Deck combination. Colour selection was also critical using high contrast between support posts and component elements so those with visual challenges would recognize changes in elevation and play feature and “feel” their way around. The rubber surface also features tactile elements to increase the interest and a full array of swing opportunities also exists in belt, bucket, moulded bucket and tire swing options covering all ages and abilities.
